Chicago outhit Miami six to three on Friday night but couldn’t turn baserunners into runs as the Marlins evened the four-game series at one with a 2-0 win.
The Cubs added four walks to the six hits (three by Kris Bryant) but also hit into three double plays.
Jose Urena threw six shutout innings and three Miami relievers finished his job, including AJ Ramos in the ninth who nailed down his 11th save of the season.
John Lackey held his own and gave up just two runs (one earned) in six innings. The hard luck loss sunk his record to 5-8.
You’d probably expect Jon Lester to have a better record, too. He’s just 4-4 after winning two starts ago with seven innings of one-run ball against the Mets.
He made it two quality starts in a row with two runs in six innings against San Diego last time.
Giancarlo Stanton’s 458-foot home run in the third was all Miami needed on Friday night. Christian Yelich did add a sac fly insurance run in the sixth but it proved excessive.
Justin Nicolino makes his fifth start of the season for the Fish on Saturday evening. He’s averaged four innings a start in his four prior but has only managed three innings in each of his last two trips to the mound.
Nicolino hasn’t faced the Cubs before and has experience against just one man on the Cubs’ roster: Jon Jay from his time in St. Louis.
